Armand Van Helden to play in Dubai
DJ, producer, remixer and one half of DJ duo Duck Sauce, Armand Van Helden, has been working with some of the industries biggest names since the early 90s. A new date has been added to his busy schedule, as he’s set to headline Q43’s THANK-Q Part IV party in Dubai on Thursday May 26.
When it comes to long lasting careers in the fast paced world of DJing, it seems that Armand Van Helden knows how to stay current. After spending his teen years trying to break into New York’s clubbing scene, Armand shot to global stardom in the late 90’s after he released a string of fast paced, uplifting dance cuts like “My My My” and “You Don’t Know Me”.
Since then, Armand has released seven albums, has five top thirty singles under his belt and has collaborated with a number of artists and reworked tracks including Dizzee Rascal’s “Bonkers” and Tori Amos’s hit-single “Professional Widow”. He’s even managed to keep a foot in the door of mainstream chart success under the name Duck Sauce, which so far has seen him and long-time friend A-Trak collaborate to produce hits like “Big Bad Wolf” and “Barbara Streisand” - if you haven't heard that track, you must have spent 2012 off-grid.
With Armand Van Helden you could get anything from 90s throwbacks, electronica and hip hop to breakbeat, speed garage and nu-disco. Our advice: be ready to hear some serious catchy tunes and cool remixes. The gig is free, as a special thank-you from Q43, so be sure to book a table early as they are bound to go fast.
